Demonic Desires is a very good paranormal romance with a strong storyline and fascinating demonic characters. Mandy Roth is very good at creating captivating paranormal worlds with plots that grab your attention and keep you wanting more.
The first scene is a very hot erotic dream, or is it? Donates a warrior/demon has been trying to suppress his demonic side to walk on the path of peace/goodness for 300 years. He somehow finds his demon has been summoned and he is claiming and mating the woman
He needed this. He needed her.

And from what he could gather, she needed him as well. I more than need her. I want her for all eternity. HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THINGS DEMONICALLY HOT & OH SO YUMMY! Mandy M. Roth conquers again! Boy oh boy, does she ever!! She sure knows how to amaze, astound, impress & blow me away with every single book of hers I read! There is no way that you can possibly say that Mandy has only one writing style or that her books follow a 'pattern', are 'cookie cutter' or

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. This is a fantastic book full of sexy demons one in particular Donatus and the woman who becomes his mate Ava.

Donatus is a sexy demon who had turned from evil and now fights to protect the innocent. He is strong, sensual, and he wonders if he will ever find his true soul mate.

Ava is a half angel half Valkyrie and is a powerful fighter against evil. She is hiding from Lucifer and his horde when she unknowingly calls her demon mate to her one ni

***A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review****

This is a fantastic book, one that I would love to see made into a movie. The storyline goes as follows-
Ava is a professor hired to teach Norse Mythology at the University. Actually, she is one of the first of the women to be hired there since their doors had open for it used to be an all-male student school until it recently decided to allow women to join the ranks of students. Donatus is a very handsome man who also teaches at
Beth Fuller
One kick-ass Valkyrie/Angel woman, one demonic Lost Warrior in hiding and a summoning spell to set everything in motion toward thwarting Lucifer's plans.

I think that Valkyrie are some of the coolest characters in the Paranormal genre. You don't come across them often, unless you are a Mandy M. Roth fan. She has written several books with Valkyrie in them but in each one she takes a slightly different approach toward the character. Ava is a standout example of this. Hooking her up with a bad-demo
Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac,
1.5 stars. This is one of those books that relied on sex to pave its way to being a good read. It erred. There was potential that didn't get exploited. I admit I'm a little intrigued with Kal and Gunter. Maybe enough to read their stories if they have one... The main couple bored me. Before they became all physical with one another was when I liked them the best. This book got so tedious I couldn't finish it. While they argue and drown us in their facts of how powerful they are and yaddah yah, ...more

Donatus Manlian was a well made man he was handsome in his mid thirties and a Professor at a local University. Donatus like he's friends is well respected and all around ladies man that bedded many for the hundreds of year they walk the earth due to the fact they were all Demons who have walk away from the evil they had severed . He was in search of something he believed was not possible for his kind even though he was told different,deep down he hoped it was true he just doesn't know it yet .
This was another entertaining and intense read that I so enjoy from Mandy Roth. I really loved the heroine, Ava. She is a Valkyrie and has unwittingly summoned the demon Donatus. Believing that it was a dream, she and Donatus share a passionate night together and when Donatus realizes that she is his mate he bonds/claims her.

After waking up in their own beds after their encounter they both believe that what they just experienced was a dream. Needless to say, Donatus is shocked to realize that Av
Action, sexy guys, hot feisty women--unafraid of putting those hotties in their place--and in their beds. Here's a good vs evil that sometimes blurs the lines. Donates has fought his inner self for centuries. Something takes place that threatens his restraint--someone. And she is gorgeous, irresistible Ava.

Ever have a dream, one you remembered, then run into the object of your dream? Ava has. That isn't all. No spoilers. Donates and his two big, sexy, friends are out to help him or are they? Wit
Never mind being hooked on first page. I was hooked on CHPT 1 LINE 1!!

Donatus Manlian is a centuries old demon who has turned his back on Lucifer & on doing any evil. He & a few other demons like him (the Lost Warriors), are now protecting innocents from all evil in between doing their day jobs of being professor's at a local university.

Ava Fenaly has just been hired at the small but excellent university as a professor of Norse Mythology. She's the first

Demonic Desires, by Mandy Roth was a story with a great story line, but way too much sex. I never thought I would say that about a book! The premise of this book that a being that is part evil demon and part man has learn to control and contain the demon until the demon is summoned by its mate. We go on to learn of the connection between this man, Donatus, and his mate, Ava. There is a great story line about her upbringing and how she has fought against Lucifer and his minions for all her life, ...more
I really enjoyed this story by Ms. Roth. Ava thought her future had been stolen, then she meets Donatus. Why is a human tripping all her triggers and a few she didn't know she had? I thought Ms. Roth did a wonderful job of laying out their chemistry. Neither one can be honest with each other or can they? Finding out was more than half the fun. I thought the secondary characters really added to this story. Both Donatus and Ava had friends that was wacky but loyal. It was wonderful seeing their in ...more

Wow! This is a fantastic book. Action, humour, hope, HEA, What more could you ask for except...MORE please.

I love Mandy Roth books and have read a lot of them, they are all good, but this is definitely one of the best. I actually bought this one at the beginning of April along with a lot of others (I was spending the last of my Christmas gift vouchers) and was about to start reading it when I got this copy from the author for review.

Great Book!
This was a great book. Ava is a Valkyrie and has unwittingly summoned a demon, Donatus. She believes the night of passion is only a dream until she wakes up and realizes that Donatus is real and he is meant to be her mate. Donatus also believes that their night was also a dream until he sees her at the school he teaches at. They both need to overcome their past and evil so they can be together. If you are looking for a great paranormal romance with great characters then you need to re
This was another great book by Mandy Roth. So far I have loved every book I have picked up from this author. This book was on a subject I have been reading about a lot....Valkyries and Norse mythology and it just made it all the better for me to enjoy it. I really enjoyed how Ms. Roth brought us from the beginning of a demon trying to be a good guy and not feeling like he deserves anything good to happen to him and finally realizing that he deserves love and everything that comes with it.

Donatus and Ava have such a great love story. I didn't want to put this book down. I thought it was creative and fresh. Ava thinks that her passionate night with her demon lover was a dream but boy was she in for a pleasant surprise. Despite their circumstances Donatus and Ava are perfect for each other, and they can't resist the pull and attraction. Professor by day and evil destroyer by night Ava has no idea that the man she wants and can't stop thinking about id one of the things she hunts at ...more
Ava is a kick butt gal! She is starting over at a new college away from her friends. When she meets Donatus she feels overwhelmingly protective of him. Donatus knows her! And he has some secrets of his own. Donatus struggles to keep the beast inside of him under control while near Ava.

Ava has some skills of her own as well as secrets. Ava and Donatus’s friends are a solid core of people that are there for each other. Evil can be good if it meets the right kind of love. And the evil in this book
Ava Fenaly, part angel/park Valkyre,was sure she had been dreaming when her chant summoned a demon and she gave herself to him and had hot, hot, hot, sex. Donatus Manlian, professor and demon, had been fighting his dark side for three hundred years when he got the call from Ava and could not resist her. But, something pulled him out of the dream before he could find out who she was.

Who is she??? He must find her. But how.

Hot sex, possessiveness, and evil creatures, make this a fun read.
Nikki Brooks
Donatus is smart, handsome Professor at a small, local university. He is a bit of a ladies man and a demon between the sheets...literally. Repenting for the evil he reaped whilst under Lucifers control, he and his fellow rebel Hosts are now trying to do good in the world.

Ava fed up being lonely but is conned into reciting a spell and summons a demon, Donatus in his demon form. They have a mammoth and impressive night and he slips away before she sees his human form. But there is a snag, Ava is

This is not the first time that I have read one of Mandy Roth’s books and it will not be the last. She is always able to keep me interested in her books as well as keeping little bits of them unpredictable. I really liked this book and I am looking forward to reading others in this series? I hope there is another story coming anyway. The story starts right off with a steamy scene in chapter 1. The story branches out from there. It hooked me from the start of the story and kept me interested thro ...more

I loved this story. The women are strong, powerful Alpha females. They are not weak helpless victims. The story drew me in from the start and I could not put it down. I would have enjoyed reading more about the other main characters in this story but the plot was ideal and kept me turning the page to see what was going to happen next. I am not sure if there are other books that will tell the stories of the others but I can only hope that there will be or that I will find them if there are.

I was given an ARC copy by the author for an honest review.

I can't say that i disliked the book but i can't say i enjoyed it that much as well.
i enjoyed it greatly but there was something bothering me in places.
Sometimes i felt confused over what was happening and others i was smiling so much over the things i read and how the story was evolving.
I love how Mandy writes and this book is packed with action,sex and lots of emotions.
can't waiit to read more ...
Denise Mcnamara
I love demons that are good and good girls that are badass, and that what's you get with Donatus and Ava. They dream about each other only to find out that it wasn't a dream after all and boy was that dream hottt. Ava don't know Donatus is a demon and she tries to protect him. Donatus don't know Ava is a kickass demon slayer and tries to protect her. This book has a great story line and the action will keep you on your toes.
Carla Sabatino
Great Story. I love the entire story line between Ava and Don. This book is full of passion and desire and courage. I love how strong the women are. Ava makes a great Heroine. The book seemed a mixture of The Valkyrie Series and the Druid Series with a little of the Daughter of Darkness series added in. It's Familiar story but A new one all the same. Loved it.
Jana Gundy
Action packed

I always enjoy Mandy Roth's stories, they are full of action, romance and suspense. This was different world she set up than the others I have read but I really liked the premise. You have the women who are protectors and the men who are reformed servants of lucifer. There was also some humor, which I loved.
Very original and entertaining
This book has a very interesting cast of characters in it. You have a few shifter demon/Human who turned good, a few Angel/Valkyrie who fights evil and The Devil and his minions and more demons. And you have a love story wrapped inside it all. Well written and very enjoyable self-contained story to read.
Janette Lopez
Let me just say I LOVED this book. It was just amazing. This was just the right length and told one amazing story. We meet a reformed Demon and his soon to be mate. This is the story of how they met, kicked demon butt, and fell in love. I now have to see if there are more books to this series!
Samantha Hodges
Mandy Roth does such a great job of sucking you into her stories. She never leaves you disappointed in her writings. I really loved this story about Ava and Donatus. The chemistry between the two of them was super hot!!
